Essenia was located in the southeast of the Westlands. It stretched from the Manetherendrelle and Shal rivers to the Spine of the World, and from the Sea of Storms to the northern edge of Haddon Mirk. It was bordered by Eharon to the west and Coremanda and Almoren to the north. Its capital was Aren Mador, which later became Far Madding. Its other major, Ogier-built cities were Tear and Dalsande.
Essenia arose in the aftermath of the Breaking of the World. The city of Tear was its first and oldest city, but the capital was made at Aren Mador instead. Essenia was not ruled by a single ruler, but by a coalition of nobles. First Lord Cristol brought Essenia into the Compact of the Ten Nations in 209 AB.
